9. Aloe Vera
It’s no surprise that the “plant of immortality” can be used to treat mosquito bites. Because of its soothing nature and anti-inflammatory properties, Aloe Vera can instantly cool down the irritation, itchiness, and swelling of your mosquito bite. Simply cut open a fresh Aloe leaf from the base of your plant and peel back the edges of the leaf to remove the gel. You can either apply the extracted gel directly over the bite or stash it in the fridge until its cold for some extra relief. If you don’t own an Aloe Vera plant, you can find Aloe gels and extracts from your local pharmacy, health store, or drug store.
It’s that time of year again and the mosquitoes are back with no mercy. When it comes to mosquito bites, it’s difficult to resist that persistent itch. Fortunately, there are many natural and cheap ways of combating the uncontrollable itch this summer. Suffer no more!
